Arrow Survey for Term Paper

Hey guys, I hope you guys can help me! For my Linguistics course, I have to write a term paper on different verb aspects. So I've decided to evaluate different genres of literature to see if there's a verb aspect that is more commonly used in a certain genre.

So what do I want from you? Your favorite books! I'm looking for romance, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, and of course the classics. If possible, I'd also like your favorite non-fiction book, and your favorite magazine. The magazine can be entertainment, DIY, news, or whatever.

Thank you!

My favorite book of all-time is probably The Great Gatsby or Wuthering Heights (both tragic love stories ). My favorite non-fiction book is probably Malcolm X's autobiography, and I am a total sucker for fashion magazines (Vogue, Bazaar)

I love romance novels (historical and time-travel are my favorites). My favorite book series though is the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. It is super amazing. I have been reading Nail It! magazine lately, though it only has two issues! It just came out in April.

Hmm...fiction-wise, I think I'm torn between Time Machine by H.G. Wells (sci-fi), Khirbet Khizeh (historical fiction) or All Quiet on the Western Front, which is also historical fiction. Non-fiction...hmm..maybe Black Boy? Favorite magazine is either Rolling Stone or Foodnetwork haha

Fiction wise, I'm very partial to romance, particularly suspense romance. Favorite authors include Linda Howard, Linda Jones, and Tami Hoag. Out of those authors, my favorite would probably be Shades of Twilight by Linda Howard. I also love Sidney Sheldon, and my favorite by him would probably be Master of the Game. Outside of romance/thriller, my absolute favorite book is One Good Dog by Susan WIlson. I challenge anyone to read it without crying

Non fiction, Wild Swans by Jung Chang. It's an account across a century, and three generations of women in China. It's just flat out amazing. Also When Rabbit Howls by Trudi Chase, which is a biography of a woman with Dissociative Identity Disorder (used to be Multiple Personality) with 92 personalities. Along the same lines is A Fractured Mind by Robert Oxnam.

Magazine, Juxtapoz. What can I say? I'm married to an artist http://www.juxtapoz.com/

Oh god, it's a terrible idea to ask me about books. Trying to choose a favorite book is like trying to choose a favorite child! But I'll give it a shot...

Favorite fiction book: Okay, I'm sorry I can't choose. >> I have to say...anything by Tamora Pierce. I adore all of her books, it's so hard to choose one favorite. I guess my favorite series would either be The Immortals quartet or the Beka Cooper trilogy. That's about as much as I can narrow it down. My favorite genre is fantasy, closely followed by science fiction and historical fiction.

Favorite nonfiction book: Birdology, by Sy Montgomery

Favorite magazine: In Your Flock (a parrot/bird magazine)

(Also shoooot, this is going to give me more books I want to read...I'm already intrigued by the nonfiction books you mentioned, Inky!)

I usually stick to non-fiction, historical fiction, and comedy:

Non-fiction:
- 900 Days: The Seige of Leningrad
- Daughter of Destiny - Benazir Bhutto's autobiography

Historical fiction:
- Mary, Queen of Scots
- Memoirs of Cleopatra

Comedy:
- Either one of Stephen Colbert's books
- Me Talk Pretty One Day

And of course Harry Potter. I've read those books so many time the harcover spines are ripped. Yes, I'm 27. I don't care.

I tend to lean towards the magazines with the most pictures, so that won't really help.

And I don't know what genre this book would be, but it's just hilarious and brilliant: "Alphabet Juice" by Roy Blount Jr.

Just out of curiosity, how are you going to compare all the verbs?

Good luck with your paper!
